Officials are asking that before you head up to the Poudre Canyon to check the weather and road conditions.
Because the area is so burned, vegetation that used to hold rocks, mud and other sedimentary particles is no longer there.
Anytime it rains, all the debris rushes straight down the mountain causing mud and rock slides.
Soon, CDOT is going to post signs along HWY 14 to warn residents and travelers to not park and hike along certain areas because of rock slides.
You will see these signs for years to come because of how long it will take vegetation to recover and rejuvinate.
Residents are also taking erosion and flooding into their own hands and mitigating as much property damage as possible by piling sandbags high around homes.
CDOT stressed that people are welcome up the Poudre, but to be aware of weather and road conditions because of the danger of flash floods.
Here is the link to CDOT that can help determine the safety of driving conditions throughout the Canyon.
